That's what I love about Martial Arts --- it takes the fear away, so you are actually less likely to fight.  You feel confident in your safety.  But if you felt in danger, you know you could defend yourself well.  Good to hear that TKD has boosted your son's confidence!  Exciting that you're thinking of joining after the wedding.  I'm sure that'd be awesome for you and your son to be doing it together, too. :)

Does anyone have any pictures of Tucan Terrace - with or without cocktail hour set up?  Or if anyone has used it already -- how was it?  I believe it's right behind the Tucan Beach ceremony site?

I think I'm overwhelmed at the thought of these projects as well because right now we have 110 people with their deposits down and a few more "maybes" too (Indian weddings are ridiculous!). So I'm not sure if i want to even tackle OOT bags for that many people. FI and I talked about making 1 per family or couple and handing them out at guests' homes before we leave, just so we don't have to lug all that stuff down to Cancun. What do you ladies think? Would that take away from the surprise or excitement of them? 

 

On a happier note, my parents and I just booked our flights to India for this december! I will be buying my outfits and other wedding ceremony necessities from there and haven't been since since I was 6 years old! I won't get to do much sight seeing because I"m only there for 2.5 weeks, but I'm super excited nonetheless! 



Coco!  I am so sorry!  Sending lots of love your way!!!smile03.gif

I purchased our memorial charm which will have 3 pictures.  The pictures will be of my FI's parents and my best friend who is also my Honorary Maid of Honor.  She passed away in June of 09' two days before her 37th bday.  As I'm fighting back tears, I'm going to sign off for the night.  Please keep me in your prayers....I didn't think that I would get this emotional...  thanks ladies.

We got our WC who is Janina, but it is so early that we dont have to do any planning now. The only thing was the down payment and half the cost of the package is due in two weeks. I was just wondering if they requested you to send a fax of your card that you were using (front and back). This makes me uncomfortable to be honest...so i was hoping that someone could reassure me that this was requested from them. I am so excited to begin my planning and get this minor headache out of the way!

 

Thank you so much =)



 

Would you mind sending me an e-mail too!!!  If so, I will pm you my e-mail.  Thanks!!!

Awww so sad! I'm sorry for such a major loss. I can't even begin to imagine. You know she will be there watching, and will LOVE that you are keeping her close to you on such an important occasion.

Hi Ladies!

 

First off WOW! You all are doing so many amazing things! I can't believe how beautiful everything is. You guys are doing such fantastic jobs and are inspiring me on a daily basis! 

 

Second- I am still out of town (in MT doing some wedding stuff with my mom), but I have LOTS to share when I get home! I got my amazing barefoot jewelry and hair flower from Red-i by Chelsea this week! They are absolutely beautiful and I know my girls are going to LOVE them. Even my mom seemed a little jealous...maybe a X-mas present? LOL! I will also hopefully have some OOT and decor stuff done by the time I go back to WA. I even tossed (figuratively of course) out the BMs dresses and bought something TOTALLY different! Lots to do and so little time to do it these days! 

 

Keep up the good work ladies, and I will be back to do some more posting when I get home! :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
